Aspinwall Neighborhood Watch will provide a wish list of items for planned improvements at Fountain Park.

The group has been raising money through the last two National Night Out events for equipment upgrades and other park improvements.

In addition to funds raised by the group, the borough has $5,000 set aside for work. The money will be spent before the end of the year, borough manager Melissa Lang said.

Work should be complete within the next eight months, said Councilman Jim Donahoe, who oversees the parks committee.

“They should be able to finish the upper Fountain Park and do a really nice job,” Donahoe said.

A $20,000 grant from the Allegheny Valley North Council of Governments for handicap-accessible items will also be available for the group to use.

That can help with handicap-accessible bathrooms, ramps and other items needed.

The group has done a good job of preparing for work to be done, Donahoe said. “They're doing a really good job of planning it. It's going to be really nice,” he said.
